Green Bread Mommy??!?!

Yes, Laura, green bread.  Tonight for dinner I am making cowboy chili and cornbread.  I wanted to get more veggies in these lovely little ladies so I added two ripe avocados and a little extra skim milk to a Jiffy cornbread mix.  The results.....pure green magic!  Delicious, sweet, and fun to look at, this bread was nearly gobbled up before Daddy could make it home.  Laura had 3 pieces (ok so did I) and little C had two!  Whip some up and see for yourself the yumminess of green cornbread!

 Bread is no good unless you have butter slathered all over it.  :)
 Job well done.  Thumbs up Mom!

 Chew, Gulp, Repeat....
Got anymore?  I'm one now, I can handle the some more.

Our little girl turns one tomorrow....

Tomorrow our little baby girl turns one.  It feels like this year has flown by!  Here are a few pics of the year in review.  :)  I wanted to put this up today because tomorrow we will be busy with dr. appts and birthday party preparations :)

Now we're playing!

Playdoh is fun dough!  You can mold it, shape it, and if you are Laura you like to paint it (a very messy way of playing with the dough).  Try this quick and easy recipe of home made playdoh for hours (ok minutes) of fun (moms that means you get to check your email, grab a cup of coffee, even a shower--if you are really brave).

2 cups of flour
2 cups of water
1 cups of salt
2 tablespoons of cream of tartar (this makes it stretchy)
food coloring (warning--this stains.......I know.....)

Combine all ingredients in a mixing bowl and break apart any lumps.  Transfer to a pot and heat over medium heat until smooth, turning frequently so that it doesn't stick to the pot.  Once smooth allow it to cool and then play!

Stir Fry Soup!

Yummy, healthy, and EASY!  We made stir fry soup today, the Davidovich way--dump, heat, forget!
This is the best recipe because all you have to do for prep is defrost veggies and potstickers and then you place every in a pot and heat!

Stir Fry Soup
3 TBS of Stir Fry Sauce (plus a little extra to taste)
1 package of frozen stir fry veggies
1 bag of frozen shrimp defrosted
48 oz of chicken stock
4 or 5 Trader Joe's Pot Stickers
4 oz rice sticks

 mmmm....cook pot!
The thing in her right hand is a book called Let's Go--and she meant it!  She had two helpings!
